So, you’re not married … you’re married and had your tubes tied … you’re 65 years old with grown children … you’re a man … your 12 years old and live in a convent … you can't stand those little brats but you’re pregnant! How and why did this happen? Confused? It's just a dream about pregnancy.
Your internal messages are coming through your dream state. A pregnancy represents something new in your life. Emotionally, the meaning of this pregnancy dream is telling you what you need to do to be happier in your daily life. The pregnancy dream symbolizes your own inner nature—pure and uncorrupted. Innocence and the need to be nurtured or nurture is the message. The inner child in all of us needs to be protected.
The vulnerable part of our psyche has been taught by life to put up a wall so the inner child doesn't express him or herself. Your magical child needs tending. Perhaps you've lost that daring, blasé, carefree, approach to your daily life. Childlike is an aphrodisiac. It's contagious behavior. Before you know it, everyone wants some of what you have—optimism and a wide-eyed look at life that hasn't been corrupted. Your outlook is carefree and blissfully untouched by negativity.
When dreaming you’re pregnant or having a baby, anything is possible in life. A new job, a wonderful relationship, a pet project (your baby) finally gets off the ground, or something as simple as craving motherhood. If a man dreams of pregnancy, the ambitions and hopes are similar (for you guys out there, maternity clothes fit every size).
Pregnancy dreams also carry the meaning that you feel burdened by certain emotions, hopelessness, lack of responsibility, and the need to be cared for. But with those seemingly negative feelings comes joy, discovery, love or a new phase in life. Reclaim what was once was lost, an idea, an ambition, or perhaps a labor of love.
If you have had this dream of pregnancy, it's time to reclaim a beloved action, thought or deed. Celebrate this kind of dream. It holds such promise and renewal of your personal and professional life. Don’t panic. I repeat, do not panic. If you look like you've swallowed a basketball, it’s simply your subconscious telling you to push! You’re giving birth to your new life.
